American Journal of Physics
written by Jan Tobochnik, Harvey Gould, and Jonathan Machta
This paper discusses several Monte Carlo algorithms and applications that are useful for understanding the concepts of temperature and chemical potential. We then introduce a generalization of the demon algorithm that measures the chemical potential and is suitable for simulating systems with variable particle number.

Understanding the Temperature and the Chemical Potential using Computer Simulations:

Is Based On Statistical and Thermal Physics (STP) Package

The STP Application Package contains a collection of OSP programs for the study of statistical and thermal physics concepts.  This article describes some of OSP-based programs and shows how OSP-based materials can be used to study STP concepts.
